A report from Infinity Inquirer has posted that each of the four Star Wars Rebels characters (Kanan, Ezra, Sabine and Zeb) revealed recently will initially be exclusive to 4 separate retailers as part of a timed release.
They also go on to say that after a few weeks, they should all be available where Disney Infinity figures are sold.
Thanks to our friends at MakingStarWars.net for the heads-up.
Over the weekend, forum member Jodo ran into something very few people have seen at a Target store in a long, long time… several new Black Series figures. Not full cases, of course, since Target seems to reject the notion of giving their customers a full selection of Star Wars figures these days, but it still seems like a positive sign (I ran into some stores that also stocked last week, though it was as usual, just 2-3 figures at a time).
Keep those store reports coming in, and hopefully the last handful of figures from the final waves of pre-Episode 7 Black Series actually make it to the pegs in decent supply before the onslaught of product in September…
Yakreader Jason H. writes in with a store report where he found the newest wave of 6″ Black Series figure at Target.
Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that I found the IG-88, Boushh wave of 6in Black Figures today at Target in Memphis Tennessee. I left 2 Commander Codys on the shelf.
Thanks for the report Jason
On my way out of town prior to the Memorial Day holiday weekend, I managed to find the latest wave of 6″ Black Series figures which includes Emperor Palpatine, Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper Disguise) and Clone Trooper Captain as well as the repack of Han Solo (Stormtrooper Disguise). This assortment (now in multi-lingual packaging) continues trickle out through retailers like Target and Toys”R”Us so keep your eyes open.
Looks like the Black Series 3.75″ wave 7 assortment is making its way across the middle of the US. A local collector friend here in Minnesota found Captain Rex, Dutch Vander and Commander Wolffe at three separate Target stores in the west metro, meaning, they are still splitting up cases to stock store shelves.
For a while now, it has felt to me that Hasbro’s pricing is out of control. I feel that way even more now after going shopping with my son over the weekend when he decided he wanted “more bang for his buck.”
For the whole story and to share your thoughts, head to the forums.

Target has dropped their weekly flyer today they’re offering their exclusive Hero Series 6 pack of figures (Darth Vader, Ezra, Inquisitor, Kanan, Shadow Stormtrooper and Clone Trooper Captain) for only $19.99.
Reports are coming in that Target stores across the United States are starting to receive singles here and there of the second wave of Rebels figures (already in the past week, I’ve seen more of these figures than all of Wave 1 combined since they were first released).
Be on the lookout as there’s a good chance your local Target store is receiving these too – even if it’s just 1-2 figures at a time.

Forum member Jodo has posted another good read on his blog about the issues the Star Wars fan base is dealing with, this time focusing on the action figure price increases that appear to be looming across the hobby, and have already impacted Target (well, maybe not so much yet because retailers rarely stock anything anymore that the Star Wars market wants anyway).
